A Study Guide for Those Who Want to Go Deeper. When pastor and bestselling author Rob Bell published Love Wins, it upset many while also changing lives as he questioned who was saved, who was not, and how it all works. Bell dared to question whether hell is forever, and asked if only Christians will go to heaven, igniting a firestorm of praise and backlash across the country. Bell is known for taking an existing genre and reinventing it. In this case, he takes the traditional study guide format for popular books and reinvents it as an opportunity for modeling the kind of conversation and debate the church should be having.
For those looking to go deeper with Rob Bell's bestselling pioneering book "Love Wins," this companion offers:
- Insights and commentary by theologians, Bible scholars, scientists, and pastors
- Deep analysis of all relevant Bible passages on heaven, hell, and salvation
- Detailed chapter summaries, discussion questions, and Bible studies for individuals, groups, and classes
- Excerpts from works throughout Christian history illustrating the variety of teachers also debating the issues Bell wrestles with
- New material by Bell on his mission for the book and how people can take the next step
"Bell fights every impulse in our culture to domesticate Jesus [and] challenges the reader to be open to surprise, mystery and all of the unanswerables. . . . Bell has given theologically suspicious Christians new courage to bet their life on Jesus Christ." --Christian Century
"In Love Wins, Rob Bell tackles the old heaven-and-hell question and offers a courageous alternative answer. Thousands of readers will find freedom and hope and a new way of understanding the biblical story - from beginning to end." --Brian D. McLaren, author of A New Kind of Christianity and Naked Spirituality
"It isn't easy to develop a biblical imagination that takes in the comprehensive and eternal work of Christ . . . Rob Bell goes a long way in helping us acquire just such an imagination--without a trace of soft sentimentality and without compromising an inch of evangelical conviction." --Eugene H. Peterson, Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College, and author of The Message and The Pastor
"A bold, prophetic and poetic masterpiece. I don't know any writer who expresses the inexpressible love of God as powerfully and as beautifully as Rob Bell! No one who seriously engages this book will put it down unchanged. A 'must read' book!" --Greg Boyd, senior pastor at Woodland Hills Church and author of The Myth of a Christian Nation
